How dumb do you have to be???

Okay, I just have to share this post with you from one of my favorite blogs, CakeWrecks.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blog and have shared it with a gaggle of gals.  I have read other posts of her's showing the things people write on cakes and I normally just shake my head in amazement.  But today's post just sent me over the edge.  I think it really must be the fact that I'm getting sick AGAIN.  Post Nasal Drip is not my friend and frankly, if I could find Post Nasal Drip, I'd kick its ass.  Anyways, enough about my bodily functions...

Maybe I'm lucky that I've never encountered anyone in a bakery dumb enough to do this type of thing, or maybe I'm unfortunate since I've never experienced this personally, I don't have any pictures to contribute to her.  Either way, I just don't understand how someone could place an order for a cake, give the baker/decorator instructions on how they want the cake to look, and those very same instructions wind up on the cake as part of the decoration.  I mean, really people, if you work in a bakery, does it really make sense that someone would want "in place of 'love' put a heart" written on the top of a cake?  Does that make sense to you?  Wouldn't something in your batter-filled brain make you stop and verify this stuff???

I know decorating cakes is hard work.  That's why I don't do it.  That's why I use bakeries.  I'm no dummy, I know when to call in a professional. name ain't Betty Freaking Crocker or Martha Freaking Stewart!    But come on!!!  People really never cease to amaze me.
